Andreas Tsiamis received the B.Sc. degree in Computer Science, B.Eng. degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Edinburgh. His Ph.D. thesis was on “Electrical test structures and measurement techniques for the characterisation of advanced photomasks”.

Andreas is a Post-doctoral Research Associate with the Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems and based at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre. He joined the School of Engineering in 2011 and has been working primarily on the development of sensor systems for biological, chemical and medical applications. His research involves developing and using novel semiconductor fabrication/processing techniques and materials, both at wafer and chip level.

Projects he has worked in the past include the European collaborative project METOXIA, the EPSRC research programme IMPACT, the Smart Stent project and the Innovate UK Connect-R project. He is currently developing field emitter array technology for 3D medical imaging, in collaboration with industry partners.

He has over 40 published outputs (book chapters, journal and conference publications) and has frequently presented his work at the IEEE International Conference on Microelectronic Test Structures (ICMTS).

Andreas has been a guest lecturer for BioSensors and Instrumentation / BioSensor Instrumentation 5, a teaching assistant for Analogue Electronics (Project) 4 / Analogue VLSI A and has engaged with the public at the Edinburgh Science Festival.

Academic Qualifications: 

  • BSc, BEng, PhD
